Isaac is forecast to become a hurricane by either late Monday or Tuesday and then strengthen to a Category 2 Hurricane.

A hurricane warning was issued for the Gulf Coast from Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle, including New Orleans.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said in an advisory that it might reach New Orleans and the the Gulf Coast on or near the seventh anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

I was in Chicago when Hurricane Katrina lashed New Orleans on August 29, 2005 but I cannot really remember the details because I was only 2 years old at that time.

Hurricane Katrina killed more than 1,800 people and causing billions of dollars of damage to the Gulf Coast.
